Answer:
Hi Rich,

Thank you for your question.

I have since contacted the manufacturer who have confirmed that the motor should be in the locomotive.

Thanks for using Questions and Answers.

If the answer is yes does this affect the speed of the train? So if two trains were running then the speed would be reduced by half?

Answer:
if you wanted to run 2 trains on the same track on dc layout. thay would crash. as you always get one train that is faster then the other train. if you wanted to run 2 trains on the same track then you can by adding a decoder to this loco. but then you would need a dcc controller.

Answer:
Hi, Adele.

The Hornby Tornado Pullman Train Set is an analogue set, which means if you wish to run two trains on this both will be controlled at the same time - ie if you speed one up the other will speed up as well. You will not be able to control them independently of each other.

Have a good day.

Answer:
Hi Lynn.

Having looked into this for you, I can advise that the Hornby Tornado Pullman Train Set is not the Orient Express model. This set consists of the 'Tornado' steam locomotive and 3 Pullman carriages.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
